I am trying to install Somatic Sniper on Mac. In the ReadMe file I am not clear with this particular build instruction? Could anyone please clarify what exactly I should be doing here?

h3. Compile SomaticSniper * SomaticSniper does not support in source builds. Create a new build directory, enter it, and run:

bc..         cmake /path/to/somatic-sniper/repo

Also, when I ran the command line below,

h2. Clone the SomaticSniper repository * Recursively clone the git repository

git clone --recursive git://

I am getting the following error msg: any suggestions on how I can fix this?

user MacBook Pro:somatic-sniper-master User$ git clone --recursive

Cloning into 'somatic-sniper'...

I would really appreciate any help in regards to installing this program.

Thanks, Bhakti

The message is pretty obvious - the connection times out - try again later.

With regards to your question about in source builds, it simply means that you must create a directory outside the source code to compile the code. Typically, I would do this as so:

  1. From your somatic-sniper master branch directory, create a new one called build.
  2. From within that directory type cmake ..

or by example:

$ git clone --recursive
$ cd somatic-sniper
$ mkdir build
$ cd build
$ cmake ..
$ make

I'm afraid I have no ideas other than what Istvan has already replied about your timeout issue.
